Yes, I love seamless patterns!

It will proabably be a few weeks before I can add the sleeves (silly school, why must it get in the way of fun stuff?). I forgot to add I knit the whole chart backwards! Roll Eyes I started from the left side because that's where the arrow is (I mean, why else did it get put there?).  Didn't know until I read the directions for the sleeve provisional that I was doing it wrong. :/ I certainly wasn't going to frog it at that point! So, my sleeve join should be interesting!

Update!

I got sick of stockinette stitch on another project, so I picked up the jacket again.  I didn't like the recommended lace pattern, so I did this pattern instead on the outside of the sleeve:

requisite picy:


Didn't bind off because I want to have both sleeves fitting (rest of skeins stuffed up sleeves).

Finished!



Used most of 9 skeins of Noro Kureyon, color 159. This is size S, but made jacket smaller because I was afraid of running out of yarn for matching sleeves. Had some issues with knots in the Noro.

WOW! That is GORGEOUS! I really like how it lays nice when you wear it. I saw the in-progress pics but could not picture how it would look on. Truly stunning!

Thanks! Smiley  It was a quick knit, if you discount the hiatus between the main body & sleeve work. Smiley
